    Hello,

    I'm looking for a way to encrypt the data on my USB stick that works on both my Macs and on the XP computers at work - where I don't have admin privileges. Any ideas?

    Check out TrueCrypt.

    I think.....

    TrueCrypt is a way to go, as the another poster as stated. But PGP desktop in some versions also permits cross-platform encripting. Sorry to not be able to check out that, tough:(

    Thanks for the replies, but everything I have found shows that Truecrypt needs you to have admin privileges on the XP computer - something I don't have on the work computers. I also looked at the PGP option, but the system requirements only list windows flavours.

    Any other ideas?
